- Hi, I'm Emily Jacobson,
also known as @e_jaccs.

In August of 2020, I posted
a 10-second video to TikTok,

a single phrase celebrating
the greatest rodent

of the 21st century,
Disney-Pixar's Remy the rat.

Over the following months,
hundreds of other composers,

designers, choreographers,
and actors posted

their own TikTok contributions to create

the first crowdsourced global musical

theater phenomenon,
"Ratatouille the Musical,"



and tonight to benefit the Actors Fund,

we'll see all these individual
ingredients whipped together.

In the midst of an
unimaginably challenging time

for our industry and our country,

together with brave arts
workers across the world,

we will celebrate creators
supporting creators.

This year alone, the Actors
Fund has given over 18 million

in emergency grants to arts
workers of all disciplines.

Your presence here
tonight deepens that work.

Over the past few weeks,
literally hundreds

of artists and technicians

have been working around the clock.

The TikTok creators have worked

in tandem with Broadway professionals



to develop their already
inspired creations.

We couldn't possibly
thank everyone right now

and we hope you'll check
out our digital playbill

Tonight is a moment for Broadway

to look forward into 2021 and beyond.

Together, we imagine a
Broadway that celebrates

the artistic brilliance and
historic work of everyone

in our community,
especially theater workers

who are black, indigenous,
and people of color.

A Broadway that uplifts the voices

of women and queer artists,

a Broadway where even Remy,

our tiny rat with a huge
dream, has a seat at the table.

♪ Remy, the ratatouille ♪

♪ The rat of all my dreams ♪

♪ I thank you, my ratatouille ♪

♪ May the world remember your name ♪

- Bonjour, bienvenue a
la French countryside.

My name is Remy,

and we're about to go
on a very big journey.

A lot's about to happen.

Honestly, I'm already exhausted,

and that's just showbiz!

Yes, before you have to
ask, I am indeed a rat.

I may not look like it, but I am.

There's a lot of places I could start.

The time my dad almost
died of rat poisoning

and I saved his life.

The time the old human lady

went tete-a-tete with my brother and me.

Quel horreur!

Yeah, the world isn't
a great place for rats.

So maybe we should start

with something a little more positive.

The man who inspired me to go

beyond what the world expects of rats,

the man who thinks anyone can be great,

the best chef in Paris.

That means the best in the world.

Chef August Gusteau.

Oh, oh, trash!

Trash, trash, trash! And it stinks!

Oh, wait. (sniffles)

Is that? (sniffles)

Nutella? (sniffles) Or Grey Poupon?

- (grunts) You can smell all of that?

- My brother Emile is easily impressed

by my olfactory rat genius.

- So you can smell ingredients. So what?

- My father is not, he never is.

But he's the leader of our rat pack

and he makes us steal
food from the humans.

- Uh, excusez-moi,

It is not stealing if no one wants it.

- The food you eat is trash.

If the humans don't want
it, why are we stealing it?

I know it's cliche, but
if you are what you eat,

I only want the good stuff.

- Remy, food is your fuel.

Taste has nothing to do with it.

- If we're gonna be thieves,

why don't we steal the gourmet
offerings in the kitchen?

- We are not thieves.

And you need to stay out of the kitchen

and away from those humans.

Remy, sit down, Emile, you
too, and listen to daddy.

(gentle music)

Humans have made many great things,

but they've also destroyed more

than I can count on my two paws.

Rats don't destroy.

We build with what we've got.

If we protect our families
and we're resourceful,

we make treasure out of

whatever's right there in front of us.

Rent! I mean Rat!

tatouille.

- So yeah, back to the little rat couture

who started it all.

My dad made me poison control
and told me that humans suck,

but there's still something
about them that makes me smile.

They imagine, they create,
they make new paths

when the old ones are shut down.

Like that old lady over there.

Even when she tries to exterminate us,

she does it with such creativity.

Ooh. What's that?

Oh, I know exactly what this needs.

Saffron. A little saffron would make this.

(lips smack)

It's in the kitchen!

Saffron. Saffron.

- Hmm.
- Saffron, saffron, saffron.

- It's not, it's not good.
(old lady snores)

Don't like it, I,

she's gonna wake up.
(old lady snorts)

♪ Santa Maria ♪

♪ Santa Maria ♪

♪ Catch that rodent ♪

♪ Catch that rodent ♪

♪ Pretty, pretty please ♪

- (grunts) Saffron, saffron, saffron,

saffron, where's the saffron?

(gasps) L'Aquila saffron, Italian.

Gusteau says it's excellent.

Good thing the old lady has two loves:

show tunes and fancy spices.

(Remy sniffs)
(light buzzes)

It's Gusteau.

- Gusteau's restaurant lost two

of its five stars after a scathing review

by France's top food critic, Anton Ego.

It was a severe blow to Gusteau

and the great chef died shortly afterward.

- Gusteau is dead?

(TV clicks)

- Is that a rat?

(Emile squeaking)

- Emile!
- Remy!

Come on, follow me!

Hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry!
- I'm trying!

- Hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry!

Hurry, hurry! (yells)

- Ha! I knew I smelled a rat.

(dramatic music)

(Remy yells)

- Emile?

Dad?

Anyone?

Ugh! (sniffs)

Okay, so you know my
amazing sense of smell?

Really helpful in the kitchen.
Really stinks in the sewer.

I barely escaped the kiss of
death from that dancing woman.

And I'm floating in a sea of human wastes.

And I haven't eaten in 15 minutes.

I'm starving.

- If you are hungry, go
up and look around, Remy.

Why would you moan?

- Don't tone-police me.
I'm in a dark place.

I just lost my entire family

and all my friends, probably forever.

Wait, Gusteau? Am I really talking to you?

- In a way. I am a ghost
and a storytelling device.

Don't think too hard about it.

Remy, if you focus on
what you left behind,

you will never be able
to see what lies ahead.

Now go up, get out of this
sewer, and look around.

(magical chiming)

- Paris?

All this time I've been underneath Paris?

It's beautiful.

- Ah, simple. Dig deeper.

(sign dings)
- Gusteau's?

Your restaurant?

You led me to your restaurant?

(Remy chuckles)

I looked down and saw
a real gourmet kitchen.

There were real human chefs down there.

There was Linguini, the new
waiter who had no idea how

to cook and his scary boss, Chef Skinner,

then the savvy cook, Colette,

a whole cast of culinary characters.

All of this time, I thought I was a rat

in a sewer, but I was wrong.

I was a rat in Paris!

Skinner's gourmet soup

The sad thing is,

I was counting my chickens
before they hatched.

'Cause the next thing I
knew Linguini came over

to the stove and caught me sitting

on the edge of the copper pot of soup.

- A rat? Did you touch the soup?

You poisoned it!

- Soup! Where is that soup?

- And then Skinner came in and
caught Linguini at the stove,

a major faux pas in the cutthroat world

of haute couture, I mean haute cuisine.

What can I say? Fashion
is my second passion.

- Stop, stop! Stop cooking.

You are cooking in my kitchen.

J'accuse, who do you
think you are? Get out!

- And just as Skinner
was screaming on and on

and on and on, another
waiter came and took the soup

from the kitchen and served
it anyways. (chuckles)

Linguini tried to stop
it, but it was too late.

Now secretly I was thrilled.

A real Parisian getting a
bite of my tiny rat soup.

A few seconds later,
Colette ran to the kitchen.

- The customer wants to speak to the chef.

- F-I-R-E-D. Dead.

- It's not just another customer.

It's a critic, a second string critic,

but still a critic.

Elizabeth Tagliatelle. She loved it.

- She what?

- The French critic loved my soup.

- You're still fired.

- No. Tagliatelle loved it.

Well, how can we claim to
represent the name of Gusteau

if we don't uphold his
most cherished belief?

- What belief is that, Mademoiselle Tatou?

- Anyone can cook.

- Oof, you are either very
lucky or very unlucky.

You will make this soup again

and this time, I'll be paying attention.

Very close attention.

They think you might be a cook,

but you know what I think, Linguini?

I think you are a sneaky,
overreaching, little,

Rat!

(Colette screams)

- The skinny boy scooped
me up and stared me down.

I was praying my novenas
and mourning for my life.

Why didn't I just have
the shark lady kill me

with her choreography in the first scene?

At least then I'd have a rat funeral.

- Hey, little buddy.

I can't cook, can I?

But you can, right?

Don't be so modest. Your
a rat, for Pete's sake.

Whatever you did, they liked it.

Do you think you could
teach me to do it again?

I know it sounds weird, but hey,

he had to hide me somewhere.

- Though I, like many other critics,

had written off Gusteau's as irrelevant

since the great chef's death,

the soup was a révélation,

a spicy yet subtle taste experience.

- Tagliatelle?

- Oui, oui, oui, oui.

Against all odds, Gusteau's
has recaptured our attention.

Only time will tell if they deserve it.

- Bonjour, Linguini. Welcome to hell.

- Colette
- Oui?

- will be responsible for teaching you

- how we do things here.
- Monsieur.

- Good luck! And don't
duck a l'orange it up.

- Uh, listen, I just want
you to know how honored I am

to be studying-

- No! You listen.

I just want you to know exactly
who you are dealing with.

How many women-
- Uh, well, I.

- Do you see in this kitchen?

No? No?
- Um.

- Une, because haute cuisine is

an antiquated hierarchy built upon rules

written by stupid old men, rules designed

to make it impossible for
women to enter this world.

But still I am here. How did this happen?

Excellence, talent,

and I'm good with knives.

(lively upbeat music)

You think cooking is a cute job, huh?

Like Mommy in the kitchen.

Well, Mommy never had
to face a dinner rush

when orders come flooding in

and every dish is different

and none are simple and all
have different cooking times

and must arrive at the customer's table

at exactly the same time, hot and perfect!

Every second counts,
and you cannot be mommy.

can you help me?

Okay, but promise you will

No, no, no, no, no.

This is not part of the deal.

Ooh, obsessed with her.

And I wasn't the only one.

Now, there was so much that happened

from that day with Colette in the kitchen.

I finally taught Linguine how to cook

like a real French Chef,

tug his hair here, tug
him with hair there,

and you got to bang it out.

At first, Linguine didn't trust me.

Pretty soon, we were two peas in a pod.

Or a man and a rat under his hat.

It's like puppetry, or cooking,

or mind control, or you pick.

In just a few days our soup
became a singular sensation.

Everyone in Paris was
coming to taste my bisque.

I was an artist in gay Paris,

tres avant garde,

reaching new heights of
gastronomical success.

One step closer to a restaurant
with my rat face on it.

- Take a load off little chef.

You need a break,

and so do my follicles.

- Oh, this is heaven.

A dank alleyway, a brick of cheese.

I just wish, trigger
warning vulnerability,

that my family was here
to share it all with me.

- Remy! (scoffs)

I can't believe it! You're alive!

(man laughs)

- Oh, we've been looking
for you everywhere!

(man laughs)

I knew you'd be in Paris.

I knew it!

- It's so good to have you back son!

- Man, oh man,

I have so much to tell you guys!

First of all, I'm a chef.

- No.

- First of all, you're not a chef.

You're a rat.

- Remy. If you're a big fancy chef,

in a big fancy restaurant,

in the middle if the
fanciest city in the world,

um, could you do us a solid?

- What do you want?

- Um? Scraps?

From your kitchen?

Just the stuff you're throwing out,

it's not a big ask.

- Emile, your brother's
starting to talk like a human.

- Who are not as bad as they say.

- Remy, look, you're my brother.

I love you.

But you got to stop living in the clouds.

Just come back down to reality,

and enjoying the sweet things in life.

Five day old pizza slices,

crusted at the bottom of the trash can.

Sewers so dank that you can't
even see your next step.

Ooh ooh, bacon?

The mayo off a soggy candy bar

- two days after Christmas?
- Yes.

- I mean what do they got that we don't?

We're your family. Rats.

The greatest.

Just the right amount of cheese.

I was happy to be back
with my bro and dad,

but I just couldn't deal with that diet.

So, I snuck Emile and my few pals

back into the restaurant.

Look, if a few loaves of bread go missing

and some Jarlsberg, who's
going to really notice?

Back to the skinny pasta man.

Thanks to our new partnership,

Linguini became the new
hot chef in all of Paris.

Yeah, everyone was
talking about Liguini's,

(man coughs) My bisque, and Linguini's

(man coughs) My sweetbread, and Linguini's

(man coughs) My bolognese.

Hey, look, Colette would make a suggestion

and Linguini, well, I,
would have other thoughts.

Anyway.

It seemed like Colette
was feeling some chemistry

that wasn't exactly culinary.

- Linguini. I didn't have to help you.

If I only looked out for myself,

I could've let you fail,

but I wanted you to succeed.

I liked you.

I like you.

- Look, I'm no good with words.

I'm no good with food either.

At least, not without your help.

- I hate false modesty.

It's just another way to lie.

You have talent.

- No, but I don't! Really!

It's, it's not me.

- What do you mean?

(record scratches)
- Blah, blah, blah.

Linguine told Colette about me,

the rat in the hat,

Blah, blah, blah.

The humans fell in love, big
shocker there, blah, blah.

And just when I started to realize

Linguini didn't exactly seem
like he needed me anymore,

A major bombshell broke in the press.

Linguini was Gusteau's bébé l'amour.

His secret love child.

Gusteau, my guy!

The real skinny is some
intrepid food reporter

was curious about the talent

behind this new bisque
taking Paris by storm.

So, she tracked down

Linguini's family in
Nantes and discovered,

You get it.

- [Crowd] Linguini!
Linguini! Linguini! Linguini!

- Uh.

Uh.

- Buongiorno. I'm
Bethany Joanna Germanotta

reporting from an Italian Internazionale,

did your old lady ever tell
you about her secret affair?

- Uh, My mother died when I was a child.

Oh, uh.

- Mr. Linguine, this
is Monsieur 2 4 6 0 1,

reporting from Fresh Baguette Monthly,

for once and for all,

is there any truth to the rumor

that you're knocking out Chef Skinner

and taking over as chief
chef and Gusteau's?

- What?
- What? Collusion?

(man groans)

- Turns out it was true.

Gusteau gave his restaurant to
his next of kin in his will,

so now that Linguini's true
parentage had been revealed,

there was a new head chef in town,

and Skinner was out.

- Quelle bon surprise!

Anton Ego is dining in your
restaurant aujourd'hui,

which means today.

10 years ago, he had said

that your restaurant was a tourist trap

meant for dogs with no tongues.

How are you going to change his mind?

- Wh, well, uh, (laughs), um.

- Linguini. (Speaking French)

Tell me now, what is your secret?

- Oh my paprika.

Is it my time to shine in the spotlight?

I didn't prepare a speech.

- Uh, uh.

(cameras clicking)

Colette. She taught me everything I know.

- Did I plan on yanking his hair? No.

Did I mean to yank his hair? Maybe.

Did I yank his hair? Yes.

And did I yank it again? Yes.

And yank it until he left
the press conference,

so I can give him a piece of my mind?

You bet I did.

♪ Listen up, let me tell you a stor-- ♪

- Enough.

Hey, your opinion isn't the
only one that matters here,

Colette knows how to cook too, you know.

You take a break little chef, okay?

I'm not your little puppet,

and you're not my puppet
controlling guy, okay?

You need to cool off and get
your mind right, little chef.

Ego is coming and I need to focus.

(man sighs)

- I tried to limit them, but,
- No, it's okay.

- You guys hungry? Dinner's on me. Just,

- Chef? Little chef?

Hey, little chef, listen
I feel really terrible

about what I said earlier,

and I wanted to, you know, apologize.

Listen, I just don't want
to disappoint anybody,

because I've never
disappointed anybody before,

because no, nobody's ever
expected anything of me before.

The only reason they do now
is, well, because of you.

What? Are you stealing food?

How could you? I thought you
were my friend, I trusted you.

Get out!

And don't come back,

- That's it. I going to
the health inspector.

- Not so fast!

(rats hissing and squeaking)

- Emile and his gang tied up Skinner

and threw him into the freezer.

I returned to the kitchen to find Linguini

in a mess on the ground.

I guess he told everyone about me,

and the rest of the chefs quit in horror,

which is rude,

but no time to waste.

Anton Ego is in the restaurant today.

My whole artistic and culinary career

has led to this moment.

If the gatekeeper of the
critical establishment

hates it je suis finie.

Ouai! Me!

- We're not cooks, but we're family.

Tell us what to do,

and we'll get it done.

- All right, team three will be,

All right, team three
will be handling the fish.

Team four, roasted items.

Time five, grill. Team six, sauces.

Get to your stations.

Let's go, go, go, go.

- Are we ready to go, little chef?

- Allons-y, allons-y.

- Ready as we'll ever be.

- Do you know what I'm
craving? Perspective.

(somber waltz music)

Does the chef know what that is?

Perspective?

And a glass of red vintage.

Tell him he's got just one good shot,

to hit me with his best,

yes it's test, I'll do the rest!

Don't be a pest.

- Young man, I must give
my compliments to the chef.

- Linguine told him he had to wait.

Hours passed, and then
trembling in their boots,

Linguini and Colette
brought Ego in to meet me.

- Thank you for the meal.

- And when the story was done,

he thanked us for his meal

and left without a word.

- The bitter truth that
we critics must face

is that the average piece of junk

is probably more meaningful

than our criticism designates it so.

But the world can often
be unkind to new talent,

new creations, the new needs friends.

Last night, I experienced something new,

an extraordinary meal from a
singularly unexpected source.

I now know not anyone can cook,

but a great cook can come from anywhere.

It is difficult to imagine
more humble origins

than the genius who is
now cooking at Gusteau's,

who is in this critic's opinion,

no less than the finest chef in France.

- It was a great night.

The happiest of my life.

But the only thing predictable about life

is its unpredictability.

Skinner told a health inspector,

and then the world about my identity.

Food didn't matter, once it got out that

there were rats in the kitchen
the restaurant was closed,

and Ego lost his job and his credibility,

but don't feel too bad for him.

He's doing very well as
a new business investor

in uh, my new restaurant!

I mean, our new restaurant!
